Chinese verbal phrases can function as objects and that these objects have different syntactic behaviors.It is often assumed that some of the verbal objects,which can be replaced by shenme "what"in question formation,have been nominalized while others,which can only be replaced by zenyang "how",have retained their verbal status.However,there is strong evidence that the contrast between shenme "what" and zenyang "how" is determined by the syntactic function of the constituents being replaced but not by their part of speech status. The verbal objects that can be replaced by zeyang "how" are actually the predicate of the object clauses and they themselves are not objects.
